The subtle and pleasant taste of chives make them an extremely popular food addition! Fresh chives, finely chopped, are sprinkled over soups, baked potatoes, stews, and several sauces. In mid-Summer, they will also put on quite a show with their abundant, fragrant flowers. Certainly just as well at home in the flower garden as the herb garden. Perfect year around windowsill plant, too!
In Chinese cooking, the flat leaves of garlic chives are often used the same way as we use regular chives in our cooking:., sprinkled over foods for extra fragrance and decoration. Garlic chives can be substituted by regular chives, but since regular chives have a weaker flavor, it is worthwhile to grow both so you will always have an ample supply of either one for what ever the recipe calls for.
Garlic chives have white flowers. “Purly” (onion flavor) have purple flowers.
